Top tips for hiring a car at Telluride airport

  • If you want to move around Telluride, consider using car rentals at Telluride Airport (TEX). With these car rentals, you will have enough time to visit some of the top attraction sites in town, such as Slopes of Telluride, Lush in the Green Mountains, Telluride Town Park and Ride to Mountain Village. If you use Telluride Airport car rental, you can schedule and reschedule your traveling trips compared to Galloping Goose Transit buses and trains in the town.
  • Travelers planning to have a car rental at Telluride Airport should be aware of the difficult experiences they will encounter while renting a car at the airport. Since the airport is a highly rated spot for renting cars in Telluride, you will likely experience the inconvenience of long queues at the car rental counter. This is the reason why the airports recommend online booking rather than physical.
  • Remember that only vehicles returned during working hours will be accepted when returning your car rental at Telluride Airport. Until they are fully processed, drivers are still responsible for any damages to their vehicles when they are returned after business hours. It is important to know that late return of Telluride Airports car rental may incur additional charges. Drivers are reminded to report at the car rental counter to clear with the car rental agency before dropping the keys to the rental car.
  • You will encounter significant challenges when picking up or dropping off your car at Telluride Airport on a Saturday or a public holiday like Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Independence Day, or Labor Day. These days, a disproportionately large number of travelers who require a rental car are departing or arriving from Telluride Airport. As a result, you'll likely take longer than normal to pick up or return your car at Telluride Airport.
  • Book your car hire at Telluride airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

USB in car did not work and we had no music or GPS for 1 week. Manager at location refused to give discount. I will never rent from Hertz or via Kayak again if I do not get a Credit on this rental.

Pros:

Easy location to access

Cons:

Stuck driving a cargo van with "Hertz" plastered on the side through the Rocky Mountains. Not the easiest of drives in a vehicle I was not comfortable driving.

Pros:

Pick up and drop off was quick and easy

Cons:

Car was much smaller than expected. Said Nissan Pathfinder or similar (and I know it says not guaranteed) but we got a Kia Sorento which was a lot tighter than we were planning for. Had to have bags in laps/etc. Why not just tell us exactly the car we were reserving? Doesn't seem that hard

Cons:

The final price was higher than promised. $419 versus $368 due extra taxes and fees charged by airport authority. Reason stated was rental was made at an offsite location. However, the offsite location does not rent cars. The day before rental Enterprise called to confirm pickup. Stated the pickup would be at the airport. The clerks would not honor the rental agreement. I was not told of the extra fees and taxes until drop off.
